How to work at or visit a UCOP location

All staff planning to work or visit on-site must still complete UCOP Screen or UCDC Screen before coming to a UCOP facility each day.

  • An “Approved” status clears you to enter the building the day the survey is taken. Be ready to show your confirmation email or a screenshot to security or the on-site UCOP COVID-19 facilities management coordinator.
  • A “Not Approved” status means you cannot come on-site; instead, you must contact your supervisor and for next steps. To ensure compliance, UCOP Screen and UCDC Screen survey results will be reviewed and compared to security reports to make sure only approved employees and guests have access to UCOP facilities.
